Congratulations to Emmanuel Macron who has secured the job as President of France. He seemed right at home, talking to war veterans after laying a wreath with former President Francois Hollande.
Apparently a part of French voters wanted to make sure that Marie Le Pen did not succeed. I see a correlation with current British politics here. Jeremy Corbyn is an untested leader, who has come out with such determined opinions that he is scaring the populace. I did feel sorry for him, though, when a Veterans’ charity told him not to come calling to Labour voters because they did not like his vented opinions on Northern Ireland, namely the IRA. This must be why politicians dislike putting their cards on the table, but in his case, it is better that we know now than have it inflicted if in power.
Can you see him talking to Donald Trump? He is unlikely to get along with the capitalist and Britain’s special relationship will be pitched out of the window. That includes the future of the US airbases in Britain for strategic purposes. This election has ramifications in every direction. Maybe it has always been like this and I haven’t noticed before. What do you think?
Have a great week
